Artist, University of Alabama In Court Over Use of Images

Daniel Moore is known for his paintings of University of Alabama football, which are particularly lifelike. The University thinks they are entirely too lifelike and is suing him for trademark infringement. Moore is now countersuing for violation of the Visual Artists Rights Act (17 USC Sec. 106A). He also claims the protections of free speech and freedom of the press under the First Amendment. The issue is now in federal court. Hear an NPR story and see some of Moore's art here.
